Last weekend I was hiking at Fort Funston, minding my own business, when I came across this sign: There’s No Poop Fairy!

I’ve been devastated ever since. What a mean-spirited joke! It’s like posting a sign on a six-year-old’s door that says “There’s No Tooth Fairy: Put your own money under the pillow.” Or one at Christmas which reads, “There’s No Santa Claus: Buy your own presents.”

But the most ridiculous part of this entire scene is that there most definitely is a Poop Fairy. I’ve met her several times while taking care of my business, and she looks nothing like the picture on that silly sign. So to the Poop Fairy: We still believe!
